We will stay at the Iconic Prairie Hotel, and the historic Bungaree Station in the Clare Valley.

The Flinders ranges were once ocean beds. the world constantly evolving, forces pushed the sea floors upwards exposing Fossils half a billion years old. Travelling to places mostly inaccessible to the public and relatively untouched, we go to fossil site to explore the secrets of the past…..

Clare Valley, one of the smallest wine regions in Australia. There is so much more to discover here than wine. Fine wine and fine dining after a few days in the bush. You’ll be travelling with Mr Willson in small to mid sized groups, no more than 16.

Mr Willson a local of Clare Valley with a diverse background and inquisitive nature, he loves a laugh., I hope you do too.
